The Steadfast Tin SoldierThe midnight hour struck, the old grandfather clock chiming 12 times melodically. Little Hans Andersen was upstairs sleeping after a long day of playing with friends and his beloved tin soldiers. No two were alike in the pack of 25 tin soldiers and his imagination soared to a real battlefield as he played
At each chime of the clock, all the toys in Hans' playroom came to life, the little dolls giggling and the toy cars rolling on the floor. One by one the little tin soldiers hopped out of their case in an orderly fashion, except for one tin soldier, who stumbled slightly
His name was Brian Haner, and he only had one leg. The old toymaker had run out of tin to mould his leg and left him like that. But he gave so much detail into Brian to make him as life-like as possible. He was painted with sun-kissed skin, a charming smile and soft chocolate-eyes that twinkled in the right light
The tin soldiers slowly hopped down the table and made their way down to the floor, Brian falling slightl
This Night's Almost Over -synacky-Brian Haner-Sanders couldn’t keep the growing smirk off his face as he saw Jimmy Sullivan getting flustered as he spoke to Johnny’s parents, the tall music teacher’s face blushing a bright red as he complimented Johnny’s overall performance over the year. Jimmy and Johnny had been sleeping together for a year and a bit, and it was painfully obvious how awkward Jimmy was about meeting his boyfriend’s mother and father at a parents evening, seeing as what he was doing with their son was just a little bit illegal. Brian, however, was having the time of his life, seeing as only about 5 of his overall 100 students in the grade were actually going to show up and talk to him, thanks to their parents deciding drama wasn’t a good enough subject to talk about. Brian stopped caring about a second after he was told. He just wanted to watch Jimmy flail.This Night's Almost Over -synacky-2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

"Hey Brian, have you heard ...?" Matthew Sanders, the tough guy where his seats is behind me said as I turn around and face him completely with one of my brows rise, curious.

Brian sighs, opening up another beer, reaching for the television remote, flicking through the channels. He stops momentarily on the 'late night' channels, before deciding he's not in the mood, and keeps flicking. He almost chokes on his beer when 'BREAKING NEWS' flashes up onto his screen. A white haired reporter is sat in the corner of the screen, the image of the local zoo showing next to him, quickly flicking to video footage of a panther, prowling around the grounds, green eyes glinting.
"...We are unsure of the whereabouts of Zacky the black panther, but locals are urged to lock their doors and windows, to not let children out, or to not approach the large cat, as he is dangerous. If spotted, please call-"
Brian turns off the TV and stares at the blank screen. Slowly, he places his can on the floor, and returns his hand to his lap.

Zacky Baker awoke in tears, yet again. It had been a terrible, exhausting weekend for him. He'd tried numerous times to talk to his boyfriend, Brian Haner, Jr., leaving too many tearful messages to count. Biting his lip, he grabbed his cell phone from his nightstand, hoping that there'd be some kind of a message from Brian, but his hopes were immediately dashed when the text message he had waiting wasn't from Brian, but from Jimmy Sullivan, the cause of all of his problems.
Zacky hadn't spoken to Jimmy since Friday when he'd lashed out at him, but that was just fine with him. He blamed Jimmy for Brian leaving him, but he also blamed himself for pushing the person he loved the most in the world into a situati

A couple months later...
It was Valentine's Day and Brian wanted to throw himself out in front of a fast-moving freight train. It had been two months since he'd seen or spoken to Zacky. He'd read the texts that his ex-boyfriend still occasionally sent him, but he never responded. It hurt too badly to. Zacky had been the boy he'd had all of his firsts with - first crush, first date, first dance, first kiss, first sexual experience, both top and bottom, and first heartbreak. Brian had made it a point to just move on with his life and leave everything in Huntington Beach behind him. Sure, he missed his hometown, but the beaches of Florida weren't too bad of a substitute. Truth be told, things seemed to be much harder for his little sister to deal with. He really couldn't blame her, she and Matt had been together pretty much since the 4th grade.

Matt watched silently as the paramedics arrived minutes later and lifted Zacky onto the stretcher. Loud sirens filled his ears as the ambulance doors closed with Zacky inside and sped off in the direction of the hospital. They wouldn't let Matt come with them. He had to stay at school while his best friend could be dead or dying for all he knew. He stayed outside, despite the cold winter chill on his bare arms, and continued to look in the direction of where the ambulance went, though it was long gone. He felt a hand on his shoulder after a few minutes had passed. He looked down at it, but didn't turn to see who it was.

This was a rule their principal and put in place and had been re-enforced by the teachers and they were very serious about it.

Zacky Baker sighed forlornly as he began the Tunnel Of Love ride he'd been in charge of for the better part of three years.

It had nothing to do with him not believing in love, because that couldn't be further from the truth. He believed wholeheartedly in love and soulmates and being together eternally ever after. It had to do with all of the hurt and jealousy he fought constantly to keep from overwhelming him because he was pretty much all alone. And it sucked.
